A complete and generous education fits a man to perform justly, skilfully and magnanimously all the offices of peace and war.
      - [Education]

A dark
  Illimitable ocean, without bound,
    Without dimension; where length, breadth, and highth,
      And time, and place, are lost; where eldest Night
        And Chaos--ancestors of Nature, hold
          Eternal anarchy, amidst the noise
            Of endless wars, and by confusion stand.
      - [Hell]

A death-like sleep,
  A gentle wafting to immortal life.
      - [Death]

A dismal, universal hiss, the sound of public scorn.
      - [Scorn]

A fabric huge
  Rose, like an exhalation.
      - [Architecture]

A father or a brother may be hated zealously, and loved civilly or naturally.
      - [Zeal]

A good principle not rightly understood may prove as hurtful as a bad.
      - [Principles]

A universe of death
  Where all life dies, death lives, and nature breeds
    Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things
      Abominable, unutterable, and worse
        Than fables yet have feign'd, or fear conceived.
      - [Hell]

Abash'd the devil stood,
  And felt how awful goodness is, and saw
    Virtue in her shape how lovely.
      - [Goodness]

Advise how war may, best upheld, move by her two main nerves, iron and gold.
      - [War]

Airs, vernal airs, breathing the smell of fields and grove, attune the trembling leaves.
      - [Spring]

All hope is lost of my reception into grace; what worse? For where no hope is left, is left no fear.
      - [Despair]

All sorts are here that all the earth yields, variety without end.
      - [Variety]

All was false and hollow, though his tongue
  Dropt manna, and could make the worst appear
    The better reason.
      - [Proverbs]

Among the writers of all ages, some deserve fame, and have it; others neither have nor deserve it; some have it, not deserving it; others, though deserving it, yet totally miss it, or have it not equal to their deserts.
      - [Fame]

Anarchy is the sure consequence of tyranny; or no power that is not limited by laws can ever be protected by them.
      - [Anarchy]

And now the thickened sky like a dark ceiling stood; down rushed the rain impetuous.
      - [Rain]

And what the people but a herd confus'd,
  A miscellaneous rabble, who extol
    Things vulgar, and, well weigh'd, scarce worth the praise?
      They praise, and they admire, they know not what;
        And know not whom, but as one leads the other;
          And what delight to be by such extoll'd,
            To live upon their tongues, and be their talk,
              Of whom to be disprais'd were no small praise?
      - [People]

And with necessity,
  The tyrant's plea, excused his devilish deeds.
      - [Proverbs]

Angels contented with their face in heaven,
  Seek not the praise of men.
      - [Angels]

Anger and just rebuke, and judgment given,
  That brought into this world a world of woe,
    Sin and her shadow Death, and Misery,
      Death's harbinger.
      - [Sin]

Apostate, still thou err'st, nor end wilt find
  Offering, from the paths of truth remote.
      - [Apostasy]

Apt words have power to suage the tumors of a troubled mind.
      - [Consolation]

Arm the obdured breast with stubborn patience as with triple steel.
      - [Patience]

At His birth a star, unseen before in heaven, proclaims Him come.
      - [Christ]
